Players take on the role of a "Ranger" military soldier armed with conventional weaponry, a "Pale Wing" special ops soldier equipped with a jetpack and armed with energy weapons, or new to this version, an "Air Raider," who fights indirectly through the strategic placement and dispatch of trip mines, sentry guns, air strikes and more. Players must fend off the invaders in each mission area, either alone or with up to three friends, through frenetic real-time combat set in real-life locations. Helmed by the original developers at Sandlot, this is the definitive version of what fans typically consider to be the best EDF title. Expand

    It won't necessarily appeal to everyone, but if you're the target audience, rest assured EDF 2 on the Vita will hit all the right buttons.

    Earth Defense Force 2 is an action-packed game that, even with its own flaws (like repetitive gameplay) it stands out as a very fun and addictive game. Play it in short sessions and/with friends, and your will find that it's a very good addition to the PS Vita library. What's more, it's one of the best pure action games on the system. If you like the genre, you'll enjoy it.

    Earth Defense Force 2 is a great Vita title, and whether you want something to play for a couple of minutes on a toilet or in-between classes, this is a must have. If you’re looking for a new game that you and your friends can have some fun together in, this is also definitely worth checking out. It’s dumb, silly fun, and even though the lack of a story can kill your motivation to progress sometimes, at the end of the day it’s still way too much fun to just drop into Tokyo and blast away dozens of giant mutant ants from space.

    Earth Defense Force 2 is not the best game that we have on PS Vita but undoubtedly has a very good execution on its gameplay elements. We loved that the game comes to west officially for the first time because kill giant insects and other alien invaders is fun and relaxing especially when you are with friends.

    It's a little buggy, and a little repetitive, but if you put the time in you'll find a bombastic game that fits nicely onto the Vita.

    It may not be pretty, it may not be ground-breaking, but what Earth Defense Force 2 lacks in creativity it makes up in the sheer scale of its ridiculous, addictive and fun B-movie style action.

    While the original is a cult classic, this version won't carry on that legacy. EDF 2 has a patented premise behind it, but all of the pieces of this puzzle are inhibited by technical issues. It's hard to find the fun.
